New Swirl Jem - with Perle Guitars Neck!

Hi All

Just a quick post to show off the customer build i've just finished

Specs are :

Herc Fede swirl/body
Nate - Perle Guitars neck with custom inlay.
Dimarzio pickups
New Ibanez Jap hardware

Returning customer Ian, dreamt up the spec/colour scheme and i've built it for him.............

OF PARTICULAR NOTE : is the absolutely awesome neck made by Nate Perle of Perle Guitars.

Constructed of lightly flamed maple back with walnut stripes & volute(as per late 7V spec). Ebony board with custom inlay........ comprising of real Abalone larger leaves with neon green smaller leaves. Great headstock spray job in neon yellow with green logo. Plays and looks fantastic............ If anyone is having any doubts about using Perle Guitars for a build......... then doubt no more!!!

When he says it will take 3 months - it takes........... 3 months! and what you get it TOP NOTCH!! and is EXACTLY what you asked for! I've had 6 necks now and all have been spot on!

Anyway................. the Guitar!!!!.......









Max

Re: New Swirl Jem - with Perle Guitars Neck!

Well done,love it,but i do prefer the Neck to be swirled also.

Other than that,it looks GREAT,and the yellow neck looks factory.

I hope my Swirls turn out like that one.

As usual,exemplary work from Herc.

So,at the end of the day,the neck and body would be $800 ausd alone ?

Pickups ( UK Price ) $380 ausd

Trem and Acc's $300

So would a figure of approx $1600 ausd be about right ?

Thanks and congrats,hell guitar man.

Re: New Swirl Jem - with Perle Guitars Neck!

You'd think the headstock would say "Perle" or "Fede" or something denoting what the guitar actually *is*, rather than fraudulently advertising it as an Ibanez.

Re: New Swirl Jem - with Perle Guitars Neck!

I was under the impression that these 'Tribute' guitars were acceptable on this site.

Except Chibanez's......

They absolutely are.

However, I think there's a difference between someone building a 'tribute' guitar on their own, and a vendor (who's also an Ibanez parts dealer) building and selling a guitar with "Ibanez" on the headstock.

Re: New Swirl Jem - with Perle Guitars Neck!

I do lean towards having it unbranded rather than branded inappropriately.

On the other hand, all these tribute guitars do advertise Ibanez in one way or another.

So, I'll just stop here and get out... so I don't get accused of not getting out much
